I guess I never put something up on this. Quick primer on how to use Tags and Prefixes below: If you want a thread with an appropriate, searchable tag like "Brooks" or "Seravalli," it's quick and easy. When you start a thread, after including your title but before posting the content, be sure to click/tap on the "Add Tags" button just below the title field: Once there, begin typing out your tag(s). Tags are comma separated, so if you only want one, type it out (or select it from the drop-down list), and include one comma to end the tag. Additional tags can be included, each ended by a comma. If you wish to prefix your thread topic with a tag, like the examples above, use the "Item prefix" field that shows once you've included as least one tag in your topic. Select the tag you want as your searchable prefix and fill out the remaining content of your thread. Lots of common prefix tags — Brooks, GDT, Mercogliano, etc. — have been color coded for consistency and to help them stand out. Post your topic as normal.
Whether you are tired of seeing posts about coronavirus, pizza, politics, or whoever ends up being the whipping boy this year, we've enabled a new feature for you: Ignore Topics. This plugin allows you to ignore any topic you choose so that it will not appear in your Activity Streams, Search Results, or in standard forum view. For example, if you are tired of hearing about Goodrow, and there's a popular topic on him in the Rangers' section, you can choose to ignore the topic by opening it and selecting Ignore Topic at the top of the thread list. This will effectively mute the topic for you, though there are a handful of small leaks in the plug-in. If someone tags you in the thread, for example, you will see the notification for being tagged. If you follow the link, it will take you to the thread. But you will not see new posts in that thread normally via search, forum view (the list of topics in a forum), or in your activity stream. If you wish to rejoin a topic you've ignored, you can do so by re-entering the conversation. From the standard home page view, you will still see the topic is active if it's popular, and you can still access it directly from the preview link, but you will not see it if you enter the forum itself. It's a little clunky, but my guess is the developer designed it this way to limit your ability to get back in as best as possible without completely shutting you out. Thanks, Phil
